Australia

Australia is known by the Aussies as 'The Lucky Country' and the name is well justified! Stunning coastlines, ancient mountains, deserts, reefs, rainforests and cosmopolitan cities. An astounding diversity of wildlife and unspoilt landscapes to enjoy. Both ancient and modern Australia is sure to surprise and delight you.

Size
Australia is big. The land area of Australia is 7.69 million square kilometres, making Australia only slightly smaller than the USA mainland and nearly thirty times the size of New Zealand. So how do you get around Australia? If you are on a short trip, you will need to travel by air. Australia's domestic airlines provide extensive coverage allowing you to hop quickly between cities and sights. In between Australia has an enormous network of well-maintained roads and highways with some of the most beautiful road touring in the world

Nature
Australia's remoteness from the rest of the world and it's vastness have produced and protected a wonderful range of wildlife, kangaroos, parrots, wombats, and lizards are easy to see. Flora from rainforest to desert cacti, landscapes from coral reefs to ancient mountains, it's all here.

Adventure
Dive the reefs, ride a camel to dinner, hike, bike or relax, be independent, take a tour with a knowledgeable guide, do it in a day or enjoy a multi day experience such as the Great Ocean Road or a great Barrier Reef overnight cruise. Many of Australia's accommodations are based in areas of natural significance and offer activities and experiences to make sure you get the very best from your Australia Holiday.

Seasons
The Australian summer from Dec-Feb is warm and sunny and you can enjoy lazy days on the beach and typical Aussie meals cooked on the barbecue. Summer is the rainy season in our tropical regions in the north that brings our lush rainforests to life. Spring and autumn are mild and are the best seasons for bush walks and discovering nature.

The Australian winter Jun-Aug is generally mild, but offers snow on the snow fields in the southern mountain regions. At the same time our northern states have balmy 24 degrees Celsius temperatures and offers the best time to visit there.
